Just me

Shadows on my soul often smudge the light
I feel alone as again I face this fight
Fear and aloneness trample my will
Ever so strong, I am prisoner still

Winning the prize no longer embraces
The heart journeys on whatever the paces
Feet grow weary and speak to give in
Trudging on still… the world spins

My battle though quiet is screaming inside
If you knew my heart you wouldn’t abide
Darkness envelopes, consumes and grieves
Though I run away it never leaves

I long for the ease to be happy in life
Knowing only discord, sadness and strife
Normal is threatening and untrue to me
My wretched story is written I see

To erase, to eradicate images of pain
A wish I make for myself though in vain
Others with smiles I mimic to blend
My storm rages and will never end

So many questions and panic surround
Scared and surrendered, I curl on the ground
Wishing for someone to reach for my hand
I use my own, steady and stand

Unseen power from inner hidden places
Comfort and relief….I can’t see the faces
Just when I think I’m finished and done
I turn around and this battle’s won.
